Bout of Books 10 Read-A-Thon + Goals

I am super excited to be participating in my very first Bout of Books read-a-thon! It’s going to be so much fun so I also suggest you sign up. The more the better! 🙂

Hosted by: Bout of Books

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

You can follow me on Twitter and Instagram where I’ll be updated on what I will/am reading.I haven’t made a list of books I do want to read however, I do want to start shrinking my TBR pile as it is slowly in progress of getting out of hand. Oops?

Although I still have school to attend and a bunch of assignments due this week, no matter how big this pile may be, I will attempt to read as much as I can. I am really pumped and know that it’s going to be lots of FUN!

Good luck to all of the participants, and happy reading! 🙂

Wrap Up

So the Bout of Books read-a-thon was a hit (for me atleast). I was quite surprise to see that I’ve been able to finish more than a book with a week. Overall I’ve finished two novels and one graphic novel(manga).  I am very pleased with how I did and although I didn’t read all that I wanted, I had so much fun and that’s what really counts! Hope you guys had fun and if you didn’t participated, you can do so in the next one! I’d like to thank  Bout of Books and can’t wait for more in the future! 😀
